We are excited to announce the next home of
Amoeba Hollywood will be at 6200 Hollywood Blvd!
We are humbled by the massive outpouring of support throughout this search from our customers and the LA community. We aim to do you proud and continue on as your supreme source for music, movies, and so much more. We will bring that familiar Amoeba energy into this new space and you can be sure it will provide the "true Amoeba experience" as we will carry the same breadth and depth of selection. We look forward to seeing you at our new home on the corner of Hollywood & Argyle this Fall, and have provided more details for you below. Thank you for being a part of this journey with us.
WHERE IS THE NEW LOCATION?
We're moving to 6200 Hollywood Blvd! We're going to take up a huge ground level space on the corner of Hollywood and Argyle in the new “El Centro” complex in downtown Hollywood. This is just 2 blocks east and 2 blocks north of our current location, and right next door to the Fonda Theatre so we'll be easy to find!
WHEN WILL THE NEW STORE OPEN?
Sometime after Labor Day 2020. We’ll let everyone know the exact date as it gets closer.
IS IT AS BIG AS THE CURRENT SPACE?
It's a bit smaller, but not a whole lot... It's still a huge space that will house all the formats and goodies we carry now. We will remain a Hollywood institution.
HOW LONG WILL YOU BE CLOSED BEFORE THE NEW STORE OPENS?
We're not exactly sure, but as little as possible! We've got a lot of stuff to move and set up, but we'll know more about this as the date nears.
WILL THERE BE A NEW PHONE NUMBER?
No. You can still reach one of our friendly Amoebites at (323) 245-6400.
WILL OLD STORE CREDIT AND GIFT CERTIFICATES BE ACCEPTED AT THE NEW LOCATION?
Yes! Unredeemed store credit and gift certificates will be honored at the new location, just as they are now.
WILL YOU STILL HOST LIVE SHOWS?
Yes! We'll continue to have live shows, signings, DJ Sets, and meet-and-greet events every week, as we do now.
WHERE SHOULD I PARK? WHAT'S THE COST?
The “El Centro” complex has a large, well-managed parking garage and we'll validate for the first 75 minutes with any in-store purchase.
IS THERE OTHER PARKING AVAILABLE IN THE AREA?
Yes, there are many parking meters on all three of the surrounding streets (Hollywood, Argyle, and El Centro), as well as a few public lots (Eastown, LA fitness, W Hotel, Fonda Theatre) within a short walk.
WHAT'S THE EASIEST WAY TO GET TO YOU BY CAR?
The new Amoeba is easily accessible! The 101 Freeway offers three convenient exits in the area, with the Gower exit being closest, followed by Hollywood Blvd and Vine Street exits. From surface streets, you can access Amoeba via Hollywood Blvd and cross streets (from the south) Argyle and El Centro, and (from the north) Argyle and Gower.
WHAT PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION IS THE BEST TO GET TO YOU?
The new Amoeba will be just across the street from the Hollywood/Vine station on the Metro Red Line. The 217 bus stops one block west, on Hollywood between Argyle & Vine.
WILL YOU STILL BUY USED PRODUCT?
Yes! Our trade counter will be right up front, like it is now. There will also be a few short-term meters on Argyle for easy unloading.
ARE THERE OTHER NEIGHBORING BUSINESSES?
Yes! In the El Centro complex there will be great L.A.-based businesses such as Urban Radish Market & Healthy Spot as our neighbors. Next door is the always rockin' Fonda Theatre, and just across Hollywood Blvd. is the new Funko Pop store and Shake Shack, with the historic Pantages Theater and Frolic Room just west of us on Hollywood Blvd. Additionally, there are many eateries, coffee shops, retail shopping, and the huge W Hotel all within easy walking distance.
WILL AMOEBA.COM ORDERS BE INTERRUPTED?
We don't anticipate the move will have a major impact on online sales, though certain items may be restricted during the actual moving days. We will update as the moving date nears.
WHAT'S THE BEST WAY TO STAY UPDATED WITH ACTUAL OPENING DATE AND ANY BIG UPDATES AND ANNOUNCEMENTS?
“Los Angeles is a creative capital — a place filled with dreamers who move and inspire us every day. Amoeba Music reflects the best of this creative spirit, and Angelenos are fortunate this beloved cultural treasure has found a new home guaranteeing its place in our city for years to come.” - Mayor Eric Garcetti
“I think I speak for most Angelenos when I say that we are thrilled that our beloved Amoeba Music is staying in Hollywood... and are even more delighted to welcome the store to the Walk of Fame, which we are actively trying to enhance with my HEART of Hollywood initiative.” - Mitch O’Farrell , Los Angeles City Councilmember
